Last week I went 12-4 on the straight up picks and 4-3 against the spread. It looks like we may be cooling off a bit on the picks against the spread after a few hot weeks.
Buccaneers @ Packers: Packers
I’m feeling a bit of an upset in Seattle, but I stuck with my formula and took the Eagles. I don’t make picks with my gut, but if I did I would pick the Seahawks over the Eagles.
Against the Spread
This will be updated as the lines change, up until I make my bets. Remember, if you are planning on making money off of these, don’t. I do this for fun, not to feed my wife and kids.
When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors.
Redskins (-1.5) @ Cowboys: Cowboys
My spread: Cowboys (-3)
49ers @ Bears (-3): Bears
My spread: Bears (-8)
Broncos @ Dolphins (EVEN): Dolphins
My spread: Dolphins (-5)
Vikings @ Falcons (-3): Vikings
My spread: Vikings (-3)
Colts @ Jaguars (-9.5): Jaguars
My spread: Jaguars (-18)
Texans @ Titans: Texans
My spread: Texans (EVEN)
Panthers @ Saints (-4.5): Saints
My spread: Saints (-8)
Rams (-7) @ Cardinals: Rams
My spread: Rams (-13)
This is a weird week. Normally my spreads aren’t that far away from Vegas’ spreads. Typically when this type of thing happens my bets go to crap, so I guess we’ll see if that trend continues....
